Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi, also known as knol-khol or german turnip, is a stout, round, tuberous vegetable in the brassica family, the family that also includes cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens, and brussels sprouts. This stem vegetable is native to europe. Knol knol is a perennial, cool season vegetable. It is grown all over the temperate climates for its succulent round shaped modified stem as well for its turnip-flavored top greens.
The plant requires well-drained fertile soil and average sun light to flourish. Its edible stem attains maturity and ready for harvest in 55-60 days after sowing. Approximate weight is 150 g. Being aamodified stem-vegetable, kohlrabi is less prone for cracking and has a good standing ability for up to 30 days even after maturity. Kohlrabis have similar taste and texture as that of a broccoli stem or cabbage, but milder and sweeter. The younger stems have crispy, pleasant taste, and rich flavor. Two main varieties of knol-knol exist, white and purple. However, internally, both the "white" (actually light green color) as well as purple types have similar cream-yellow color edible flesh. Some of the popular cultivarsagrown worldwide are: white vienna, white danube, purple vienna, and grand duke.

It especially contains good amounts of many b-complex groups of vitamins such as niacin, vitamin b-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin, pantothenic acid, etc., that acts as co-factors to enzymes during various metabolism inside the body.
Knol-knol notably has good levels of minerals; copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, iron, and phosphorus are especially available in the stem.
